    I used to watch her from my kitchen window, she seemed so small as she muscled her way through the crowd of boys on the playground. The school was across the street from our home and I would often watch the kids as they played during recess. A sea of children, and yet to me, she stood out from them all. I remember the first day I saw her playing basketball. I watched in wonder as she ran circles around the other kids. She managed to shoot jump shots just over their heads and into the net. The boys always tried to stop her but no one could. I began to notice her at other times, basketball in hand, playing alone. She would practice dribbling and shooting over and over again, sometimes until dark. One day I asked her why she practiced so much.

    She looked directly in my eyes and without a moment of hesitation she said, “I want to go to college. The only way I can go is if I get a scholarship. I like basketball. I decided that if I were good enough, I would get a scholarship. I am going to play college basketball. I want to be the best. My Daddy told me if the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count.” Then she smiled and ran towards the court to recap the routine I had seen over and over again. Well, I had to give it to her—she was determined. I watched her through those junior high years and into high school. Every week, she led her varsity team to victory.

    我以前常常从厨房的窗户看到她穿梭于操场上的一群男孩子中间她显得那?#31383;?#23567;学校在我家的街对面我可以经常看到孩子们在下?#38382;?#38388;打球尽管有一大群的孩子但我觉得她跟其他的孩子截然不同我记得第一天看到她打篮球的情景看着她在其他孩子?#21592;?#20828;来转去我感到十分惊奇她总是尽力地跳起投篮球恰好越过那些孩子的头顶飞入篮筐那些男孩总是拼命地阻止她但没有人可以做得到我开始注意到她有时候一个人打球她一遍遍地练习运球和投篮有时直到天黑有一天我问她为什么这么刻苦地练习

    她直视着我的眼睛不加思索地说:“我想上大学只有获得奖学金我才能上大学我?#19981;?#25171;篮球 我想只要我打得好我就能获得奖学金我要到大学去打篮球我想成为最棒的球员我爸爸告诉我说心中?#24515;?#26631;风雨不折腰”说完她笑了笑跑向篮球场又开始我之前见过的一遍又一遍的练习 嘿我服了她了——她是下定了决心了我看着她这些年从初中升到高中每个星期她带领的学校篮球代表队都能够获胜

    为了心中的梦想

    One day in her senior year, I saw her sitting in the grass, head cradled in her arms. I walked across the street and sat down in the cool grass beside her. Quietly I asked what was wrong. “Oh, nothing,” came a soft reply. “I am just too short.” The coach told her that at 5’5” she would probably never get to play for a top ranked team— much less offered a scholarship—so she should stop dreaming about college. She was heartbroken and I felt my own throat tighten as I sensed her disappointment. I asked her if she had talked to her dad about it yet. She lifted her head from her hands and told me that her father said those coaches were wrong.

    They just did not understand the power of a dream. He told her that if she really wanted to play for a good college, if she truly wanted a scholarship, that nothing could stop her except one thing — her own attitude. He told her again, “If the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count.” The next year, as she and her team went to the Northern California Championship game, she was seen by a college recruiter. She was indeed offered a scholarship, a full ride, to a Division 1, NCAA women’s basketball team. She was going to get the college education that she had dreamed of and worked toward for all those years.

    高?#24515;?#20250;儿的某一天我看见她坐在草地上头埋在臂弯里我穿过街道坐到她?#21592;?#30340;清凉的草地上我轻轻地问出什么事了“哦没什么”她轻声回答“只是我太矮了”原来篮球教练告诉她以五英尺五英寸的身材她几乎是没有机会到一流的球队去打球的——更不用说会获得奖学金了——所以她应该放弃想上大学的梦想她很伤心我也觉得自己的喉咙发紧因为我感觉到了她的失望我问她是否与她的爸爸谈过这件事她从臂弯里抬起头告诉我她爸爸?#30340;?#20123;教练错了

    他们根本不懂得梦想的力量他告诉她如果真的想到一个好的大学去打篮球如果她真的想获得奖学金任何东西也不能阻止她除非她自己不愿意他又一次跟她说“心中?#24515;?#26631;风雨不折腰”第二年当她和她的球队去参加北加利福尼亚州冠军赛时她被一位大学的招生人员看中了她真的获得了奖学金一个全面资助的奖学金并且进入美国全国大学体育协会其中一队女子甲组篮球队她将接受她曾梦想并为之奋斗多年的大学教育

    It’s true: If the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count.

    是的心中?#24515;?#26631;风雨不折腰
